I stayed a Japanese-style hotel which is called the Tamura in March. There are some upsides and downsides. The details are as follow. <Upsides> 1. There are unique and relaxing hot spring baths in this hotel. You are absolutely satisfied with them if you are an enthusiast about hot spring. 2. This hotel has kind of old Japanese-style facilities. You...

Shima Tamura is a 450 year old Japanese-style inn (ryokan) about a 2.5 hour drive from Tokyo. The rooms are clean, spacious and laid out well. The food is very good, particularly the huge buffet breakfast. The highlight of the place, however, is the huge choice of hot spring baths (onsen), both indoors and outdoors. I would recommend this place...

海外に住んでいますが、この15年、毎年この四万温泉たむらに数泊いたします。何と言っても、温泉の質が程よく強く、体を芯からほぐしてくれます。檜の夢想の湯、川や森を見渡せる森のこだま、もっとも、古い原泉に近いお風呂(名前を忘れました)のお湯は素晴らしく、また、そこにある檜造のサウナは最高です。お食事も美味しく、さらに、従業員の方々のきめの細かな心遣いに、毎回頭が下がります。毎年こちらに、お邪魔するのが楽しみです。色々なお風呂がありますので、何日滞在しても、退屈をしません。20年ほど、いろいろな温泉を訪ねましたが、結局、たむらが私たちにとっては、一番です。 This is the hot spring, which we could highly recommend, if you like real Japanese-style hot spring. There are many different types of bath in this ryokan. There are two outside bath (both have one for women and one for men), one made of Japanese cypress, one huge bath, one bath close the the original spring head, one sauna...

The bus trip from Tokyo was almost as lovely as this classic ryokan. Having twice tried unsuccessfully to time my Japan travel with cherry blossom season, three times was a charm. While the Tokyo season was coming to a close, the route to Shima was flush with blossoms along the rivers and mountainsides. Greeted by hotel staff at the bus...
